Trust me, I've been there, I've looked, I've searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.
There’s broken walls all around Where ruins lay That once stood proud Mighty stones Once of a temple That held the love of God Was that you? Are you scattered? In pieces destroyed Lost beneath the sands Sands time that pass you by Once so strong Now just destroyed Where did it all go wrong? How did it come to this? Scattered walls Of a fallen heart Who once believed All could be rebuilt All could be remade By the hand of the Maker The master potter Who breathes life Into dust and bone He who formed the stones Of your shattered temple The heart and soul That once held Him so I stand with you Amongst these ruins With my hands I will start to gather These stones together One by one Stone by stone My God with me Our God with us The temple will stand once again Tall and proud Beneath the sun and stars The temple of a heart So full of God For out faithful Lord He who made the world Will see this rise From shifting sands To stand again Before the world
I have been hiding Here among the broken ruins That were created by my lies Just waiting for a magic wand To rebuild everything I’ve broken I was left lying on the floor in the dust Where my tears left a stain
But now I’ve awoken By the mighty hand of God My eyes have been opened wide That I no longer see these ruins Block by block, stone by stone I’m rebuilding this city of mine By the strength of grace and love I can rebuild this to be new
The dust has gone These floors of bright stone Shine within the light of His glory The Son is here by my side Now I truly know that He never left This part of His kingdom is rising high With His strength I place these stones To rebuild a life that once was broken Yet by Grace has been made alive
Like the skeleton of a castle From days long since past Some things forever remain in ruins But in my eyes I can see The castle rebuilt in front of me Every stone is lifted upon the wind And put in place by the Maker’s hand As the walls reach up towards heaven So am I destined to remain in ruin Or will I submit myself to the Maker’s hand To put back together all I have destroyed And before my eyes will life become new And reach up high unto the heavens Where you’ll hear my voice shouting with joy In wonderful praise before the feet of my Lord Where I’m destined to be forevermore Not left between the ruins of these walls
